    Christian Mythology by George Every is an interesting read if this is the an area that interest you It can be a good starting point especially if you don't have anything better at hand However it is not a very detailed andor elaborate take on Christian mythology It will probably leave you hungry for if you're interested in this topic I've always been fascinated by mythology Generally speaking I did find this book interesting but I also felt that it could have been better written I would have liked to learn about Judaism and its mythology because that's obviously the basis for Christian mythology It would also be interesting to study how different pagan religions got reflected in Christian mythology Christian mythology by George Every is not a particularly well written andor researched book The writing isn't very engaging and the writer assumes you're already familiar with the topic I was familiar and interested in the theme but I found my attention drifting I think that the information in this book could have been better organized I do own a copy of this book a hardcover Croatian edition and it's lovely It's over one hundred pages long not 24 pages as the English edition goodreads describes is and it includes many famous classical Christian painting and art That's perhaps the best part of the book for me the illustrations To conclude I'm happy to own a copy and I think I did learn a few things from it I can recommend Christian Mythology but it is a lukewarm recommendation if you understand what I mean

    I bought this as a means of reading the mythological stories of Christianity with some thoughtful annotation I was particularly looking forward to versions of Lucifer's fall and the war with the angels which seem to be common knowledge especially for people educated in Catholic schoolsbut as far as I know aren't actually IN the Bible This book was pretty much a Master's Degree Thesis about the symbolism of myths which it assumed the reader was already fairly familiar with Provided a good feel for how deeply pagan mythology influenced medieval Christianity but very dry and presupposed a lot of fore knowledge
